Country French Wine ServerComments (0)
Create old-world charm with a few weekends' worth of work.
By Craig Bentzley
There’s something about a glass of fine wine that evokes visions of France. So when I was asked to design a server to store 24 bottles, my decision to create a piece that resembled a well-loved French antique was a no-brainer. As you’ll see, this piece combines form and function. Featuring special moldings for storing glasses and a drawer for wine-related accessories, this server is sure to be a hit with the wine connoisseurs in your social life.
Beginning woodworkers will appreciate the straightforward construction process. Despite its appearance, you can easily build this piece using plywood and solid stock available in most home centers. The rustic hardware, carved feet, and grape onlays are only a phone call away.
Once you build the server, try a surprisingly easy finishing technique that adds years of character with just a brush. (See “4-Step Antique Finish,” page 39.)
